No, they're not universal, but 99.99+% of source trees do not directly
reference files outside of the source tree. i've never personally seen even
one which does (and i've seen a boatload of source trees).

In any case - i've come to accept that Geany's project file is but a
convenience for remembering what i was editing, and not a real "project
file" (it doesn't know how to build my project - GNU make does that for me).
And given that scope, it's absolute-path behaviour doesn't bother me all
that much any more. But i do think the solution mentioned by Jiri and others
would be "the right thing to do."
